    Files prior to or before

    Hi guys,

    Please check.

    "All the files that are prior to 10/10/14 should be deleted" or "that are before 10/10/14 should be deleted"?

    'All files dated before 10/10/14' should be understandable.

    Re: Files prior to or before

    Ok so we should say, "All files or calls that are before". But where to use "prior" then, I think it also means "before"?

    'Before' and 'prior to' mean the same thing.
